The Children’s Workshop in Rumford offers high quality child care and early learning for toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten, and school age children. Our school age buses and vans provide transportation to and from both the Pawtucket and East Providence public schools, as well as both private and charter schools in the area. No matter where you are in the city, we can transport your child to our facility before and after school.
Our center is located on the East Providence/Pawtucket line in the Narragansett Business Park off Newport Ave (near Building 19 & The East Providence Cinema). Our spacious, developmentally appropriate classrooms give us plenty of room for learning and play and are designed with our children in mind. We are never restrained by our lack of space and the teachers have the space to do any small or large project they can think of! Our center includes two outdoor playgrounds and a big, bright school age room! We also have an in ground pool which is an integral part of our large summer camp program. We have swim time for pre-kindergarten through school age twice a day, and even offer swim lessons for our preschool classroom. We have a certified lifeguard on staff who provides lessons and safety at our pool at all times.
Parent Communication App
We have an extraordinary Parent Communication App that our teachers use daily to relay information and send pictures to family members, send newsletters, and track developmental progress for each child’s portfolio! With this application, parents/guardians are able to opt into email or text alerts and they can receive any information, instantaneously, about their child and their child’s school day.
Teachers and staff can tag daily pictures with our Developmental Domains (Social/Emotional, Physical, Artistic, Cognitive, and Language/Literacy) and are then able to communicate with the parents/guardians by adding captions or sending quick little notes.
Families LOVE this feature and we’re utilizing it more and more each day! We are so excited to be able to communicate with our families throughout the day and to show them what their children are learning each day.
For more information about our Parent Communication, please visit our Family Communication page or contact the Director of the school you are interested in learning more about!
We are VERY proud to be a NAEYC accredited facility and a BrightStars rated program! For more information about NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and the high quality standards they demand of their accredited programs, please Visit the NAEYC website
Our center is open conveniently from 6:30am – 6:00pm and our affordable rates include breakfast, hot lunch and daily snacks. We invite you to visit our center at any time; we’d love to give you and your family a tour. For more information or to schedule a visit, please call us at 401-434-1118.

Preschool & Pre-K
Hello! My name is Jason and I am the Director of our school in Rumford. I hold a degree in Human Services and have over twenty years of experience working with children of all ages in various settings; most recently holding the position of Assistant Director of a Preschool serving families with children ages six months to twelve years old. Prior to that work experience, I was employed by Harmony Hill School, starting my career there in February of 2000 as a Vacation Relief Counselor and eventually working my way to the position of Campus Supervisor/ Weekend Manager.
Passionate about helping others succeed, I have dedicated the majority of my career doing so by working with both main stream and special populations. It has been quite rewarding watching young people reach their personal goals and milestones, despite the many challenges life can offer.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, as well as being outdoors, cooking and listening to all types of music.
Feel free to give me a call! I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and schedule you a tour of our facility. I am looking forward to introducing you to our dedicated teachers and showing you some examples of the exciting and enriching activities the children here are involved in!

My daughter went there when she was 2 and now again at 4 she loves it and all the teachers are awesome especially Miss Ashley and Miss Meredith and can’t forget Miss Sharon in the toddler room. They are whom I’ve dealt with so that’s why i pointed them out but everyone there at the children’s workshop are phenomenal. I definitely recommend sending your child here, if theres openings !
